● A new BE Affiliated Event joins the calendar for early August
● Running alongside a Country Fair at Glamis Castle
The team at established event centre, Auchlishie Eventing will be putting on a spectacular show in the superb setting of Glamis Castle in August 2019. In addition to affiliated BE eventing, there will be a Country Fair to attract spectators from across Scotland and the north.
Running classes from BE 80(T) up to Novice in the first year and with on-site stabling, this is a great event for the grass roots eventers to come along to. Organiser, James Helyer, says “this is an exciting new venture for us and we could not be luckier with the venue – not only is it a stunning place for an event, but the staff at Glamis could not be more accommodating. The event slots neatly into a gap in the Scottish calendar, so we are hoping for good support from the northern eventing community”.
The cross country courses will be designed by BE A-list Course Designer and Platinum Course Builder Adrian Ditcham, who was the lead builder at the London 2012 Olympics. The courses will wind through the natural parkland and go through the most amazing water complex. Adrian says “the natural features of the parkland will make choosing the route easy – my job will be to ask the right questions in the right places in order to offer a fun challenge to competitors at all levels.”
The main ring will have show jumping throughout the event and a natural amphitheatre gives a great view over the centre of the event.
The Country Fair will take place alongside the horse trials and in addition to an array of tradestands, there will be food and craft tents and other countryside attractions for the public to enjoy. Assistant Organiser, Thomas Helyer says he is “relishing the challenge of putting on this new event and looking forward to working with a new team to provide an event that has something for everyone”.
After a record-breaking twenty eight years as title sponsor of the Badminton Horse Trials, Mitsubishi Motors in the UK has decided to withdraw after the 2019 Event. Badminton is recognised as one of the world’s greatest sporting contests. Mitsubishi Motors has played an enormous role in maintaining the prestige of this ultimate test of all round horsemanship.
Badminton celebrates its 70th anniversary in 2019 and recently has had year-on-year record attendances with 185,000 spectators during this year’s competition.
Said Event director Hugh Thomas, “It is always sad when a very successful partnership comes to an end, and especially when over the years event and sponsor have developed a genuine friendship, however when one door closes another one opens and it will be exciting to see where that leads.”
Rob Lindley, Managing Director at Mitsubishi Motors in the UK commented “We have had an outstanding collaboration with the Badminton Horse Trials and it has played an important part in raising the profile of our brand and our vehicles over the years. Badminton 2019 will be as prestigious as ever and we wish the Event the greatest success for the future.”
Weston Park is situated on the Shropshire/Staffordshire border - the house, built in 1671 was the ancestral home of the Earls of Bradford. Visitors are attracted from all over the world to this sunning venue which today is run by a charitable foundation.
Weston Park Horse Trials has experience stretching over 40 years in show casing Championship level events with educational Cross Country Courses, respected for bold and encouraging beautifully built and dressed fences at all levels.
Over 500 entries have been received for this action packed weekend – which include some of the world’s leading riders – Oliver Townend, Polly Stockton, Jeanette Brakewell, and Irish team member Padraig Mccarthy who recently competed at the World Equestrian Games in Tryon.
On Saturday the Blue Chip BE90 and the Blue Chip Central North West BE80(T) Challenge and on Sunday the Rookery Park Novice Sections and Moores Metals Open Novice including under 18's plus the Blue Chip BE100. Each day will run a Mitsubishi Regional Final which is a qualifier for the Mitsubishi Motors Cup at Badminton next May. The organisers of Weston Park Horse Trials are thrilled to be working with all their Sponsors - David and Catherine Witt of Rookery Park Stud being the Title sponsors once again.
The Blue Chip Central North West BE80(T) Challenge was designed to enhance the education of the BE80(T) competitor, attracting new competitors to British Eventing and last year provided the grassroots riders of our sport within the region an exciting end to their season.
The Challenge has run qualifiers within The Central North West at the eight qualifying events – the last being Kelsall Hill two weeks ago where Amy Dixon and Goodluck II qualified.
The final proved to be so popular with competitors that they had to be split into two sections with Blue Chip Feed providing a year's sponsorship to the winner of each section. This great prize will also include the winner starring in Blue Chip promotions. What a fantastic prize!
Clare Blaskey, founder of Blue Chip Feed, who have supported Weston Park since it welcomed the grassroots riders in 2013 said "Blue Chip is thrilled to continue with their support of the Blue Chip BE80(T) it is the perfect Championship for riders starting out on their eventing career."
The course, designed by Janet Plant and superbly constructed, will run over a thousand acres of rolling wooded parkland and the fences are solid and imposing. Each class runs over a different course Janet comments “it is always a great privilege to design on such a fabulous estate and the courses run on the central park through the wood by Park Lake giving wonderful views from the vantage points which is greatly appreciated by owners, riders and spectators”.
